Twice this week I have woken up in the early hours and not been able to get back to sleep. Although the up side of this was the first time I had an entertaining email conversation with Lynn.
I hate missing out on sleep, it makes me even grumpier than normal.
This week I did the parent's evening appointment with T's teacher. Always a bit of a concern as T has intensely disliked his time at junior school for a variety fo reasons. What with year 6 being so crucial before senior school and all the issues regarding the school in general I wasn't sure how it would go but I was very happily surprised by what I found. This year T finally has a teacher who understands him.
My sister C isn't well. She hasn't been to work since Tuesday. She may have tonsilitis or it maybe glandular fever. Whatever it is she looks dreadful and so I've popped down a couple of times to visit, take shopping in and walk the dogs. It's her birthday tomorrow so I'm hoping that big pile of polka dot wrapped presents will cheer her up a little.
Yesterday was an inset day for both T and S and I have to say we didn't do much. Had plenty to do here I hadn't managed the rest of the week like sorting new car insurance also lots to do getting T all sorted to go off to camp with the Cubs this weekend. It's a special one for Sixers and Seconders only. I drove a very excited T to Winchester , excited because they were due to set off for a hike in the dark at 9.30!
